Spreading DHS Propaganda
Reporters Should Begin Asking Questions 

Congressional Quarterly -- October 4  
Concrete fencing? SBI mesh fencing near Yuma succumbs to shifting sands.

Issues: Immigration: The Jobs Factor   
"Many observers suggest that some of the measures that the 110th Congress did approve could come under renewed budgetary scrutiny as their mandates expire — such as the 670-mile stretch of concrete fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, which was supposed to be completed by the end of 2008, but now is more than $400 million over budget and just barely half-finished."

Glenn Spencer: You say that only half of the 670-mile border fence is finished. As reported yesterday in the Sierra Vista Herald, the DHS has built only 126 miles of fence and it is not concrete - it is a single layer of mostly ineffective mesh fencing. As the pilot of the airplane that surveys the border, I can tell you that the DHS has not been telling the truth about the border fence. You can't be faulted for reporting DHS propaganda.

U.S. leadership challenged   
It was an era of gargantuan excess not seen since the 1920s, while at the same time the United States is prosecuting two wars that have cost the same amount as the administration's bailout bill, including all the last-minute pork and earmarks, or $200 billion short of $1 trillion. The bailout was not fashioned to make the rich richer, but to make sure the rich don't get poor... ~Visit AmericanPatrol.com~
